SILVIA  POLOTO

SILVIA POLOTO

SILVIA POLOTO Biography

Brazilian-born Silvia Poloto is an accomplished artist working in a range of visual disciplines. She is known for her lively abstract canvases and mixed-media sculptures.

Recognized for her dynamic compositions and color sensibility, Poloto exploits a vibrant visual vocabulary of boldness and subtlety. Her deftly handled juxtapositions unfold in rich, textured hues and expressive gesture. The result is a body of work characterized by equal amounts of surprise, playfulness and provocation. Her aesthetic choices engage the viewer on a visceral level.

Poloto has worked in a variety of media, including photography, sculpture, painting and video. Elements of each of these media find their home in her current work.

Although she makes the San Francisco Bay Area her home, her work has been exhibited throughout the U.S. and in locations worldwide including The United Arab Emirates, France, Spain, Jordan, Italy, Romania, Croatia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Greece and China, among others.

In the Bay Area, Poloto’s work has been featured in exhibitions at The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, The Italian American Museum of San Francisco and the deYoung Museum, where she was an Artist-in-Residence.

Poloto’s work has been acquired by more than 80 institutional and corporate collections around the US, and by more than 900 private collectors around the world.
